We are so pleased to announce that our brand new Durham Miami Blvd office is OPENING MARCH 2ND!
Lane & Associates Family Dentistry began work on our new Durham Miami dental office back in early 2019 and we are finally ready to move from our old Miami Blvd location. Starting on Monday, March 2nd our Durham Miami team will officially be moving to the new location and seeing patients day one. Take a look at our brand new location below!
We ask for patience from our Durham Miami patients during this transition and promise to continue to provide the standard of care that our offices are known for. Please be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointments in the coming weeks in case health and medical information need to be updated.
Our office will also house North Carolina Oral Surgery + Orthodontics across the suite from us. NCOSO provides in-house Oral Surgery procedures such as Wisdom Teeth Removal, Dental Implants, IV Sedation & in-house Orthodontic procedures such as Braces, Invisalign®, and Children’s Orthodontics.
